A: Whoa! Salmon! Definitely more of a rose color than I'm used to in my beer, but this looks promising. A light pinkish head forms briefly and then settles to a thin ring.

S: I definitely get some white wine right away. Oak barrel really stands out with some Brett in the back, along with some hibiscus, lime and some underripe raspberry.

T: Very much like a sparkling rose. Dry throughout with some nice floral notes, earthy malt tones, light Brett, and some lime peel in the finish. From the ingredients, I thought this would be pretty sweet, but it's anything but. Dry for days.

Great pink lemonade color. Nice hazy pink grapefruit. Nice bubbly white head and thin collar. Aroma is a sweet floral hibiscus, slight tart citrus and slight dry/tart yeast funk. Taste is that floral-funk combo at the front, some Brett/lime tart in the middle, then fades back to the hibiscus. Nice light body and medium-light carbonation.

750ml bottle, split

Sporting a similar billing as the dazzling Brother Soigne, I snagged a few of these immediately from bottleworks. This is the 2nd anchorage/hill farmstead collaboration that I'm familiar with - surprisingly pink body, light bubbly carbonation. It's still relatively mild with the brett really pretty soft - i think a few years will transform this beer pretty dramatically. The lime and hibiscus play nicely - here's hoping these two breweries keep collaborating as they're definitely two favorites on my shortlist.
